Eight Places to Satisfy your Chicken and Waffle Cravings

Posted By on Thu, Jul 30, 2009 at 9:48 AM

A favorite of stoners and soul food lovers alike, chicken and waffles is the ultimate combination of dinner and breakfast. Wondering where to find the best spots that dish up this sweet and savory combination? We've compiled a coast-to-coast list of favorites.

1. Little Skillet
Located right here in San Francisco, the recently opened Little Skillet serves up traditional chicken and waffles along with a laundry list of sides, including mushroom-herb gravy, sausage gravy, strawberry-rhubarb jam, and butterscotch. Not in the mood for  chicken and waffles? Little Skillet also offers angel biscuits, po' boys, and straight-up boxes of chicken.

2. Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles

brought chicken and waffles from Harlem to the West Coast back in the

1970s. Now the Los Angeles chain is the go-to pop culture reference for

the combo, with celebrities like Snoop Dogg and Arsenio Hall praising

the goodies dished out here. Any day now, early Roscoe's alum Michele

Wilson is expected to launch her own place, Gussies' Chicken and

Waffles, in San Francisco.

3. Lo-Lo's Chicken and Waffles

This Phoenix, Arizona spot is known countrywide for its self-described "fried chicken and golden brown waffles." The most popular item on the menu is a doozy -- three fried chicken pieces, two waffles, two cheese-covered eggs, onions, and a side of grits.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
